5 Reasons Why It's Good To Be A Morning Person

You snooze, you lose.

Most people have a hard time waking up before 9 AM and need a couple cups of coffee in their system before they're up and going for the day. It's sometimes hard to pull yourself out of bed, the warm comfort of your blankets basically holding you captive, even harder to get yourself dressed, teeth brushed, and hair combed. It's a rough time before the sunrises for some, but not for me! Being a morning person has been one of the easiest things in my life and when I tell people that they often shutter in fear and apologize.

I've learned that there are a lot of benefits to being a morning person that always make it worthwhile over hitting the snooze button.

1. Sunrise.

Seeing the sun rise is something a lot of people take for granted but it's something that I enjoy. Nothing is more fun to me than walking outside of a building when it's still dark out and watching the sun rise from above the horizon. Not only is it a calming way to start my morning, but it helps me keep myself in check and prepare myself the the day ahead! Plus, I'm not waking up to the awful burst of sunshine seeping through my blinds.

2. Productivity.

The best time for me to get things done is in the morning, and using all of those extra hours I have in the morning allows me to get things done! I don't have to worry about staying up late and pulling all-nighters because I have time within my day to do the things I need to do. Being a morning person has really allowed myself the ability to keep myself less stressed just because I have more time to get things done. It's been a huge benefit in college for sure.

3. Class Registration.

Not only has being a morning person been beneficial for my productivity in school, but it's also been really helpful with class registration. The grand majority of college kids would die at the thought of taking a 9 AM, let alone an 8 AM. Those classes for me are no problem at all and it makes registering for classes a little bit easier considering there are always spots available for those classes early in the morning.

4. Saving Money.

Being a natural morning person means I don't ave to start my day off with a cup of coffee, or two, or three depending on who you are. I've never had to think about budgeting for daily Starbucks or had to seriously considering buying a Keurig coffee machine to keep in the dorms with me. The average person spends over $1,000 dollars on coffee alone each year which means that I can save that money to put to things that are more important to me, like paying off student debt.

5. Energy!


Waking up early without any help from caffeine really does boost me through the whole entire day without feeling tired. There's no slowing down, especially because there's no added sugar going into my body that will make me crash later. Once I wake up, I'm jumping out of bed looking for things to do, places to go, and people to see. Being a morning person makes me want to go out and go do things, and having the energy from a good nights sleep is always a bonus!

Sure, night owls are cool, but in reality, being a morning person is where it's at. The early bird gets the worm, and that worm has a lot of benefits on a day to day basis, but also in the grand scheme of things.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
